Barry Humphries honoured in King’s birthday list

From The Guardian:

The late Barry Humphries has been awarded the highest accolade in the King’s birthday honours list, as the prizes achieve gender parity for the first time in their five-decade history.

Humphries was one of six Australians to be made a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC), alongside former premier of Western Australia Colin Barnett, Parkinson’s researcher Glenda Margaret Halliday and former Labor minister Jenny Macklin.

The late performer’s AC was made for his “eminent service to the arts as a comedian, actor, author, satirist and entertainer, to the promotion of Australian culture, and as a patron of organisations.”
